Welsh Government/Carers Trust Carers Support Fund
APPLICATIONS TEMPORARILY CLOSED
The Carers Support Fund Wales has been put in place by the Welsh Government to help unpaid carers with today’s financial pressures.
If you are an unpaid carer and worried about money, you may be able to get a one-off grant. This is a grant and will not need to be paid back.
The Carers Support Fund is limited and different funds are available to carers in different local authority areas. Depending on demand, there may be times when we have to temporarily close the Fund to applications, or you may be put on a waiting list.
We want to get funds out to all who are eligible as quickly as possible and don’t want to turn down applications because information is missing. So please fill out your form with all the details asked for as soon as you can.
These grants are for adult and young carers. Please read the guidance and when the grants are open you will need to fill in the application form here.
If you have already received a Welsh Government Carers Support grant from us since December 2022, please do not apply again.
This is a one application per household fund, so we are able to support as many unpaid carers as possible at this really difficult time.
We have in the past received multiple household applications and applications which do not meet the criteria, so please do read the guidance before applying to reduce the chance of disappointment.
Our staff are working extremely hard to ensure we are supporting unpaid carers who are finding it difficult to afford essential items, so please be patient and respectful if you are applying and/or are unsuccessful with your application.
Please do look at our other grants to see if they are suitable.
